i got the instruction a LOOONG time ago and just started trying to make my 1st poppet. Everyone says they're so easy, so i feel like a dunce. Can someone PLEASE email me how to make the head and the ears??? I tried following the instructions but i'm having a stupid day. If you don't want to put it on here, as i know ghilie likes to email the patters, please pm me. I'm so excited to finally be able to make one, but i'm having such problems. Any tips or tricks are greatly appreciated- major problems with the body and the head & ears. Thanks so much!!

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

You may want to ask this question in the poppet along thread found in the misc board.
Perhaps I can give you some instruction.
1. Sew around the face leaving the other side open. Cut out, leaving a 1/4" seam allowance.
2. Sew around the back of the head. This is the part that has the "leave open" notation and has a larger bump and a slope. You'll need to make sure you leave that open as it's the place where the neck is inserted and where the neck gets sewn to the head piece.  Cut out, leaving 1/4" seam allowance.
3. place right sides together, matching up seams on top and bottom. Make sure that the top of the face, the larger arc, is located at the top of the back of the head.
Sew all the way around.

I hope this hasn't confused you any.
